18mpg?

My Rubicon gets 12mpg city and 14 hwy. I took it to Santa Fe, NM, which is 4000 feet elevation and got 18 mpg. If I read this right, with less air and more fuel, it gets better mileage. Is there a way to increase the fuel with larger injectors, etc, and get better milage at sea level?

Any ideas?

I think it's less air therefore less fuel due to the computer compensating to maintain the correct air fuel mixture. . . less power too.
